  • Proof of Santa being real has been revealed

These conflicts resulted in the church being demolished and rebuilt, which is when the remains are thought to have been taken from Saint Nicholas's grave, despite the objections of Greek Orthodox monks.

The character Santa Claus is based upon St. Nicholas, a bishop in the Hellenic 4th-century city Myra, now located in Turkey. According to the official site for the Saint Nicholas Center, Saint Nicholas' remains are divided between a tomb in the crypt of the Basilica di San Nicola in Bari, Italy and church of San Nicoló in Venice, Italy.

"If relics are found, they would need to be dated and examined by global experts". He was, however, based on Saint Nicholas, a man that lived during the fourth century who did indeed have a habit of handing out gifts to people in secret.

Karabayram added to Turkey's Hurriyet that the excavation is progressing steadily and "we will reach the ground and maybe we will find the untouched body of St. Nicholas".

In addition, researching old documents, scholars have found a message that taken to Bari, the bones actually belonged to another priest, said Mr. Karabairs.

He says he optimistic about finding Santa's corpse in the new crypt.

Famous for his anonymous gift-giving and generosity, Saint Nicholas of Myra (now Demre) was a patron saint of sailors and was very fond of kids. Depicted as a portly, joyous, white-bearded man-sometimes with spectacles-wearing a red coat with white fur collar and cuffs, white-fur-cuffed red pants, and black leather belt and boots, Santa Claus is said to bring gifts for the kids who have been well-behaved and disciplined throughout the year.

Saint Nicholas became popularised in Europe as part of the figure of Father Christmas (or sometimes Captain Christmas). When the Dutch arrived in the United States, their pronunciation of Saint Nicholas as "Sinterklaas" later transformed into Santa Claus, as he is known by many today.
